|Category||All Mountain On Trail|
|Snow Types||Groomed, Hardpack, Ice|
|Terrain||Open Runs/Trails, Moguls|
Light, intuitive, and nimble - the Belle 80 summed up in three words. As our narrowest women’s model, it’s incredibly quick edge to edge, and our nanoMAG Damping System provides great edge grip and minimizes chatter on ice and hardpack. A responsive feel is afforded by the moderate flex, which is tailored to women and makes for a ski that isn't overly demanding or unforgiving. The Belle 80 is purpose-built for those who love to cruise the frontside.

- Tight radius makes for a quick, agile ski that excels at short to medium turns.
- Flat tail with minimal rise provides pop out of turns.
- Camber pockets molded within the overall camber triple the turn initiation contact points for maximum edge grip on hardpack.
- Hybrid MidLight construction combines ash and poplar hardwoods with carbon fiber and triaxial fiberglass for a smooth and stable, yet energetic ride.
- nanoMAG® Damping System makes chatter on ice and choppy groomers a thing of the past.
- Rounded mini-cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and provide a sleek look.
What length should I get?
The Belle 80 has an early-rise tip and a moderate flex. If you are between lengths, size up for stability at speed or size down for quicker turns. Check out our size chart for more info.
What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Belle 80 as long as the brake width is at least 80 mm wide. We run Marker Squire bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.
What can I customize?
Just about anything from graphics to construction!
What are Camber Pockets?
Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4" long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice.
Are they tuned and waxed?
Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 2° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.
Ride Notes: Super easy to turn, quick shifting from edge to edge, perfect for cruising a blue groomer.
Design Needs: Grip on hardpack/ice - smooth yet forgiving flex - quick edge-to-edge - easy to ski on but stable when driven.
Purpose: Build a women's carving/all mountain ski that can be used by new intermediate up to advanced skiers. Make it easy to cruise on, but also break through the crud.
Skier Level: Intermediate | Belle 80 Length: 162cm | Height: 5'5"
Laminated ash/poplar hardwood: Long grain premium white ash and tulip poplar are hand selected and cut into full-length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.
nanoMAG® Damping System
nanoMAG® magnesium sheets are inlaid into the wood cores. The unique characteristic of this material is its ability to dissipate mechanical energy into heat, with increased capacity as the material is moved faster.
Unidirectional carbon fiber strips below the core, triaxial fiberglass above and below the core, fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.
Entropy Super Sap® epoxy contains 28% bio-based content and is specifically designed for skis. It's formulated for high-strength and impact resistance, which creates a durable, tough, and lightweight composite.
Full-height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.
Clearview gloss nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to the wood core.
Base + Edge
1.4 mm CNC Knife Cut 4001 Race Grade Durasurf sintered UHMW. 2.2 mm over-sized and heat-treated edges take a beating.
Every single pair of Shaggy’s is built at our small, wholly owned ski factory in Boyne City, Michigan. We source all of our materials as locally as possible and take no shortcuts during the build process, using the most modern equipment and methods to carefully craft our skis.
Cutting-edge technology, premium materials, and limitless customization are worthless if the end product isn’t built with passion. A love for skiing is a prerequisite for each and every employee at Shaggy’s. We design, prototype, and test every ski model before it’s made available to you, and that passion for skiing is clearly evident in our end product.
That exacting detail doesn’t end with your new skis; your experience as a customer is paramount to us as well. Our team is always happy to offer assistance - before, during, and after your ski purchase. Find out for yourself why we refer to our customers as the Shaggy’s Family.
